Here's what you'll get:
Essential Vocal Techniques & Fundamentals For Beginners 101: In this section, you'll learn how to stand (posture), breath, properly position the mouth and tongue, pronunciation of vowels versus consonants, and the importance of facial expression. By the end of this section, you'll have a nice entry-level introduction to proper singing techniques.
Essential Vocal Techniques & Fundamentals For Beginners 102: In this 102 course, you apply what you learned in 101 in a variety of exercises that are slightly more challenging. You'll also start exploring various drills like octave slides, which will help you with transitioning between your chest and head voice as well as blending and range.
Essential Vocal Techniques & Fundamentals 103: The beginning of 103 focuses on how to sing extremely long phrases without taking breaths (longevity) and exercises you can practice to build up this skill. You also learn how to make sure each note you sing is precise and not in between pitches. Also, to avoid the common "Lazy Tongue" or "Lazy Mouth" problem, a series of exercises like "Butterflies" are introduced.
Vocal Stylization Techniques: Dynamics 101 - On this course, you learn the basics of dynamics and why it is important to use such techniques in your singing to set you apart. Nena takes you through 3 exercises along with tons of activities and application to perfect your stylization skills. By the end of this section, you'll learn a series of techniques involving energy usage, manipulating volume, sighing, crying, straight tones, vibrato, and many more.
Vocal Stylization Techniques: Dynamics 102 - In this section, you will delve even deeper into the world of dynamics as you study crescendos, decrescendos, accents, enunciation of consonants, breath marks, and my more techniques. Each concept is accompanied by a number of exercises, which break into activities and real-life application and examples.
Vocal Modes & Scales 101 - Here, you'll learn several common modes that you can use to further your singing ability. Understanding modes allow you to know where you're going so that you don't end up hanging on to some strange pitch while the song has progressed elsewhere. How to turn what would be risky into confident runs and ideas based on modal scales that always work! Referenced by Nena as the "bootcamp" course, this section will contain many scale and modal drills to whip you in shape!
Vocal Riffs, Runs, & Arpeggios 101 - In this basic technique course, you will learn steps that will catapult you to the next level of stylization. You'll discover the backbone of various arpeggios, riffs, and runs by learning a few unique patterns. By understanding these patterns and being able to sing them, you'll be able to add countless amounts of style to your singing.
Vocal Riffs, Runs, & Arpeggios 102 - Leaving from where the 101 section ends, this course takes you through even more exercises and activities that introduce you to further riffs, runs, and arpeggios. You learn about ascending versus descending arpeggios, riffs and repeated phrasing, and how to create your own runs with knowledge you've learned so far. You also incorporate a number of vowel and consonant sounds to create endless possibilities.
